Kyle Curnutt, an Abilene High School student, earned the highest possible score of 36 on the ACT college entrance exam.

The ACT Test is an exam that is designed to assess how well a student is equipped for college based on four subject tests: English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. The subject tests have sub-scores ranging from one to 18, and all four combine to form a total between one and 36 for the overall score.

As KTXS reported, Kyle Curnutt, a junior at Abilene High School, earned a 36 on the entire exam, which is the highest possible composite score. Of his class, he is “one of only 1,598 to earn a perfect score in the high school graduating Class of 2017…He scored in the top one-tenth of one percent”.

He is also the president of his class at Abilene and is involved in golf, Key Club, National Honor Society, Future Philanthropists, FCA, and UIL Math. This impressive resume, combined with his amazing score, will no doubt make him a shoe-in at Texas A&M, Rice, or Stanford where he hopes to study mechanical engineering.

Congratulations to this amazing Abilene High School student, and may your future be bright!
